Fitz And The Tantrums, Kesha to Perform at 2019 MusiCares Concert For Recovery

Fitz And The Tantrums and GRAMMY®-nominated artist Kesha will join the performance lineup at the 2019 MusiCares® Concert For Recovery on May 16. The concert will honor multi-GRAMMY® winner Macklemore and will be hosted by Joel McHale. The evening will also present a tribute to Mac Miller, and will close with a special performance by Macklemore. Additional performers will be announced shortly.

The event, presented by Amazon Music, will benefit MusiCares, which has earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator for five consecutive years. Macklemore will receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award in recognition of his significant support for MusiCares and his commitment to helping others in the addiction recovery process. MusiCares ensures music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical, and personal need, and provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery resources and programs.

Over the course of the last fiscal year, MusiCares provided more than $6.5 million dollars to approximately 8,600 members of the music industry-the largest number of dollars distributed and clients served in a single year in the charity's history. Established in 1989 by the Recording Academy™, MusiCares offers health and human services and programs to members of the music community, including emergency financial assistance for basic living expenses such as rent, utilities, and car payments; medical expenses, including doctor, dentist and hospital bills; and treatment for HIV/AIDS, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, hepatitis C, and other critical illnesses. MusiCares offers nationwide educational workshops covering a variety of subjects, including financial, legal, medical, and substance abuse issues, and programs in collaboration with health care professionals that provide services such as flu shots, hearing tests, and medical/dental screenings.

MusiCares provides access to addiction recovery treatment and sober living resources for members of the music community. Staffed by qualified chemical dependency and intervention specialists, MusiCares offers Safe Harbor Room®support, sponsored in part by the Bohemian Foundation, to provide a network to those in recovery while they are participating in the production of televised music shows and other major music events. MusiCares holds weekly addiction support groups for people to discuss how to best cope with the issues surrounding the recovery process.
